Galerie J. Kugel, who has always been offering the finest works of art, moved to the left bank of the Seine in 2004. Nicolas and Alexis Kugel, who represent the fifth generation of antiques dealers that originated in Russia, acquired Hôtel Collot, a beautiful private mansion located near the Musée d’Orsay and opposite the Tuileries gardens, built by Louis Visconti and restored to its original splendour by renowned interior designer François-Joseph Graf. Visitors to Hôtel Collot will find an astonishing array of major pieces ranging from the medieval period and the Renaissance to the 1850’s, each selected not only for its rarity, authenticity and state of preservation but also for its quality, intrinsic beauty, provenance and historical significance.
